Review & Synopsis: Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

I’ve never seen any film by Jean M. Vallee before, until I saw Dallas Buyers Club and I can tell you that this is one of the Best films of 2013, undoubtedly! A prime contender for Best Movie and Best Actor,Supporting Actor in 86th Oscars!!

He detested Homosexuals his whole life and considered AIDS a horrible disease made for Fa***ts, until he realized that he was dying from the same disease, ironically, he was never a Fa***t!

~Review~

Shot, entirely using a single camera with ‘takes’ spanning almost 15 minutes, the movie doesn’t give an impression of a motion picture but that of a well-shot documentary (where everything looks unglamarous and shady). The use of real locations with naked strippers adds realism to it! The scrawny shoulders and bony ass of Matthew McConaughey can really leave an impression on you and you might start hating Crash Diet or diet of any other kind. Jared Leto, a HIV positive himself, on the other hand, with his skinny physique and almost peeling face can strike you hard where it hurts most (from which I meant, Heart). dallas-buyers-club-posterI never saw Matthew as an actor who can lead the film and establish a heroic persona for himself, but the one who fills up vacant roles for other actors; a filler, a side-wing and certainly the least-inspiring protagonist ever, until I watched Dallas Buyers Club! After ingesting his Southern accent and Cowboy-ish swagger with ‘F’ Word (Recited almost 500 times in the entire One n’ a half hour film), I can say he proved me wrong. He ain’t a filler nor a side-wing, but a reel hero who holds the whole weight of such a heavy-subjected film on his scrawny shoulders. Well, McConaughey sure tops my list for favorites to win Oscar this year, so does Leto for his magnanimous supporting role, which I can’t describe in just words. I didn’t figure out that was Leto until I saw the end credits (the moment I went “WOW!! Dude, You ROCK!!”). He, not only supports the weight thrown over Matthew’s shoulders throughout the film, adds charm and interest to a milder script.

A semi-real biopic of Ron Woodroof (A cocky n’ sexually hyperactive rodeo-loving Cowboy from greater Texas area), the film relays a strong and positive message to the viewers –To never loose hope! “You don’t die of a disease but lack of passion to fight against it!”

A brief life of Woodroof; from the time he’s tested HIV Positive to the moment near his death, is a constant fight against AIDS, health authorities, FDA, bigot society (in general) and, at the same time, a fight he fights along all those people who were dying from AIDS. He ain’t God, No he ain’t ma’am, but he’s a savior and a philanthropist of his own kind. Dallas Buyers Club it is, the club to help sustain lives of those who are considered a disgust in the present day world.

★★★★/5
